Hi, I’m Pam Moore, an occupational therapist-turned-award-winning health and fitness freelance journalist, certified intuitive eating coach, and podcaster.

As an intuitive eating coach, I help women heal their relationships with food, exercise, and their bodies.

The author of There’s No Room for Fear in a Burley Trailer, a (hopefully) humorous collection of stories chronicling my misadventures on my journey from amateur triathlete to mom, I’ve also written for The Washington Post, Runner’s World, SELF, The Guardian, Time, Outside, AARP, and Forbes, among others.

Despite, or more likely because of being picked last for every team as a kid, I’m also a certified personal trainer, six-time marathoner, and two-time Ironman finisher. My podcast, Real Fit, features conversations with women athletes about body image, enoughness, and more.

I live in Boulder, Colo with my husband and two daughters.

Interested in working together?

Reach out to check on my availability and to see if we’re a fit for the following:

  • Intuitive eating coaching
  • Content marketing writing for your college or university or health/wellness brand
  • Podcast guest appearances to talk about topics including intuitive eating, body image, impostor syndrome, mid-life career changes, motherhood, and self-love
  • Speaking at your organization’s next corporate wellness event

The longer story…

This website grew out of a blog I started way back when blogs were the only form of social media (e.g. the dark ages). At the time, I was working as an occupational therapist, I’d just done my first full-distance Ironman, and I thought it would be cool to share my triathlon stories online. Also, I had no idea what I was doing. (I think they call that “finding your voice”.) 

I secretly hoped a publishing agent would stumble upon my (then mediocre) blog and turn me into a famous author (cringe). That never happened, but this guy I met in a bar found it and when he called to ask me out he said he thought it was hilarious. I ended up marrying that guy in 2010. Five years later, he secretly self-published a book comprised of a selection of my blog posts and gave it to me for my birthday, so a version of my wish did come true.

At that point, burnt out on healthcare with two very young kids, I decided not to return to occupational therapy and to focus on writing. I never looked back (although it did take me about six years to sell all my cute scrubs.)  After spending years writing for parenting blogs and websites for pennies, I gradually transitioned to writing about health and fitness. About a week after I finished The Artist’s Way in 2019, Washington Post’s Wellness section invited me to become a regular contributor. Since then, I’ve penned dozens of health and wellness articles for many of my dream publications.

Along the way, I gave up the scale and embraced intuitive eating, a practice that has had a profound impact on my relationship with food, and more importantly, myself. Inspired by my own experience and wanting the opportunity to work one on one with people that I’d enjoyed as an OT, I earned my certificate as an intuitive eating counselor in 2022.
